Above Joan the quilt maker!

Joan brought her quilt that she had been making her
daughter and son in law, from all the signed patches and
some of the wedding photographs. Can't believe it's been a year!
It filled Jane's conservatory with us all holding an edge.
It brought back lots of memories and we all found our
The evening followed with tea and cake!
and a long chat putting the world to rights.
As usual I just got in before Cinderella!

Coven Quilters

I was at Weeting Quilt Group for most of the day,
machine quilting as quick as I could so I could take
my lap quilt to Coven Quilters in the evening and
hand sew the bias binding on!
I feel so lucky with what I am able to do at the moment.
Mixing work with friendship and pleasure.
We met at Jane's and were automatically
drawn to sitting in the conservatory overlooking
her wonderful garden.
Catching up and show and tell.
Above are Baby and Cot Quilts ready for the new
arrivals made by Jane.

Weeting Quilt Group

Monday was Weeting Quilt Group at the Village Hall,
11.30 until 3pm.
There was lots going on as usual and Sue was teaching
those who wanted, The Sampler Quilt Block,
starting with English piecing, the hexagons and diamonds.
The pile of blocks were made by Ida, a new member
who just wants to learn more and more about quilting and
you can see what see has made in a month!
Ella made her Sampler Quilt several years ago.
It is beautiful and hand quilted.
I remember making my first Sampler Quilt
24 years ago in The Shetland Islands.
